Hirudinea (class)FOUND by Bullfrog1
Quality checked by Julia, Anna and Andrew
Peer reviewed by Bullfrog3
The species of leech we found is a reddish-orange color. It stretches and shrinks like a slinkie. It also has dark red spots and lines going down its back. It's edges are ridged and see-through. Its end has a sucker that it uses to suck the blood out of other organisms.
It does not have a dignified facial area but it moves around as if it's sniffing the glass in the glass dish.
